Rate was competitive but they didn't change the bed sheet even after asking them twice. The room was very dirty. Soap was not provided. But window view was good. The beautiful egmore station architecture is clearly visible from the window. The location was also super.

The worst hotel I have ever stayed. The pictures shown here are completely fake. Cupboards are filled with cockroaches. Room is not clean. Please don't choose this hotel by seeing the pictures listed here.
